Our jobs as photographers have been greatly glorified by the media and shows like America's Next Top Model. Everyone seems to have this glorified view of what our jobs are like. We all sit at our computers all week in our pj's, then work an 8 hour day on a wedding day and suddenly make a ton of money. Unfortunately, that is not how the world of photography business works.
On top of being photographers, we are small business owners. We have the responsibility of marketing our businesses, managing clients, creating our own websites, being our own IT department, mentoring others, learning on a constant basis, blogging, facebooking, researching, and the list goes on.
There are many uncle Bob's and mom's with cameras out there who claim to be professionals. Wedding photographers spend thousands of dollars and even more time in education, training, attending seminars, etc. to bring our clients the best creative genius we can. That's only the start of it.
